    Congratulations on your soon-to-be new puppy! Based on the information you provided in your email, we would recommend that you feed your puppy our Purina(r) Pro Plan(r) brand Dog Food - Performance Formula - All Life Stages. Because this product is complete and balanced for maintenance for all life stages of dogs, you may feed it to your dog from the time it is a puppy throughout its entire life through adulthood.

    Our Purina(r) Pro Plan(r) brand Dog Food - Performance Formula - All Life Stages is specially formulated for the nutritional needs of hardworking and highly active dogs. It is designed with a 30% protein: 20% fat ratio which supports increased endurance and lean muscle mass. This product also provides concentrated nutrition, which optimizes oxygen metabolism (VO2 MAX) so dogs burn fat more efficiently. Real chicken is the #1 ingredient. For additional information about our Purina(r) Pro Plan(r) brand Dog Food - Performance Formula - All Life Stages, we would recommend visiting our website,

    We would recommend you utilize the feeding guidelines found on the product packaging to determine a starting point for feeding. We recommend monitoring your puppy's body condition, and adjusting the amount fed each day to ensure your puppy maintains a lean body conformation. When your puppy is not hunting or in preparation for hunting or trials, the amount fed may be less than during these times. For more information on the ideal body condition, please click on the link below.

    We hope you find this information helpful.

    Again, thank you for visiting our website."
    Damn, so I wasted my money on the puppy food. I should have came here first. :banghead:

    PPP (Performance) is very close to Purina LARGE BREED puppy in it's ingredients and make-up. I put our litters onto PP Large Breed as it is easier to find up here for our puppy buyers than Performance, but once the pups are gone, should we keep a pup we transition the pup over to PPP as we feed everyone else that.

    Has anyone ever had a dog not adjust well from the PP Large Breed Puppy to the PPP? My 9mo has had awful gas and infrequent loose stools since I switched to the 30/20. Nothing in his life has changed other than the food, same house, same crate, same work schedule/amount but he does not seem to agree with the 30/20. On my second bag of it, been on it for almost 2 months and the problem persists.

    At what age would you all switch from puppy food to adult?
